    Default Writing Failure?

    So I was Pentesting my network and while I was doing so, i recieved this error messege while using Aireplay-ng. I used the Aireplay-ng -3 -b xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx -h XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX eth1 command. Im using BT3 on a live CD and a Dell B130 laptop with the bcm43xx mini pci card. *WHICH DOES WORK* I have to keep repeating the command to generate packets and use the .ivs file Airodump-ng saves not the .cap from Aireplay in order to crack my key.
    Code:

    My guess would be that you have run out of memory, when using a live cd your memory is your hard drive and it would appear that you have run out of space.

    Yes, you can give the command a path to a drive.
    eg.
    /mnt/sdb1/output.cap

    How would i write that code out , in the --help optoin in aireplay, it doesnt talk about those writing. Could you maybe write out a command for me? I use the aireplay-ng -3 -b XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -h XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX eth1 command

    As it is airodump that writes the large file, you would want to be including it in that command line. Where you use the -w option you would specify the output file including the path as I described above.
    eg.
    blah blah -w /mnt/sdb1/output.cap blah blah
